I want to learn Finnish! Any tips?
Hey guys, I've decided to learn Finnish, but, since it's not (yet) on Duolingo, I have to find other ways to study and practice it effectively.
When learning German and Portuguese, I found books 'Essential Portuguese Grammar' and 'Essential German Grammar' to be of great use. So, just for starters, can you suggest a similar book for Finnish learners? One that would thoroughly and accessibly summarise the Finnish grammar, without the reader feeling overwhelmed.
I would also appreciate any tips or words of advice from you guys. Many thanks! :)
I don't know what is your native language but, if it is french, i can suggest the assimil course, they are well done :)....but we all know that finnish is not an easy task so that shouldn't be enough, unfortunately.
If it's not, i can suggest you (but i've never tried both actually) the course from teach yourself and/or the colloquial series.
An audio course i really like is pimsleur,but unfortunately there is not included a pdf with text because is simply na audio course but i recommend it.
While i was looking for finnish material (yes,i love this language too) i found in this site some good books to start:
And, if i remember well i saw somewhere a finnish grammar, give me one moment and i going to look for it :D.
EDIT: i found these 2 grammars here:
https://avaxhome.unblocker.xyz/ebooks/2014-10-16-70_201504211804.html (that should be the same autor who did the colloquial series)
I heard some positive reviews about this course, where the autor made also a grammar book, the second link i gave you above:
The website Memrise is pretty good as well. https://www.memrise.com/courses/english/?q=finnish
